Cody Rhodes was in attendance today at Southside Wrestling’s show in the UK.
Rhodes announced that 30-year old Anthony Ogogo has signed with All Elite Wrestling. Ogogo is a former Olympian who went 11-0 and his only loss occurred after suffering a shattered eye socket
Ogogo is pretty well known to UK boxing fans. Rhodes noted that this signing is being considered as AEW’s first developmental project. So that could mean that fans will not see him on TV for a while until he works on his pro wrestling skills.
Ogogo said a few months ago that he would like to sign with one of the major companies. He was mentioned on one of the “Road to Double or Nothing” YouTube shows so there’s been interest in him from AEW for quite some time.
